The "Intelligentsia" you refer to are all highly compensated media talking heads who receive their paychecks from the same corporate media who blacked out Sanders, colluded with the DNC to spread lies and misinformation about the election fraud during the primaries and who created Donald Trump through their endless coverage of the crazy would-be POTUS!
If you study the Intelligentsia movement prior to the Russian Revolution, all of those intellectuals who spoke out against corruption had to resort to underground newspapers, private talks to small groups of people, and who were constantly being hounded by authorities and disgraced in the main stream media.
That's NOT Paul Krugman, Michael Moore, Sarah Silverman, Rachael Maddow, Melissa Harris Perry, Ta-Nehisi Coates or anyone else who has made a regular appearance on CNN.
This DOES include, Chris Hedges, Gary Null, Richard Wolfe, Cornell West, and countless others who are consistently refused access to media events and so have resorted to using the Internet to get their points to a larger audience. ALL of these intellectuals have been Red-Baited in the Main Stream Media, (if they're mentioned at all) ALL of them have been arrested more than once for exercising their 1st Amendment Rights, and ALL of them have been threatened with physical harm whenever they make a public appearance.
The "Never Clinton" movement is a LOT larger than you think!
